Caernarfon Station.

Who were the drivers and staff?

The LMS 'Patriot' class locomotive standing in the Bangor Bay platform at Caernarfon station is on the occasionof it's naming ceremony in the 1930's. Her running number was 5515 and she was named "Caernarvon".
Other same class locomotives were named after Bangor, Holyhead, Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, and Rhyl.
Most of the nameplates were given to the various named towns when the locomotives were withdrawn.
I've seen Holyhead and Colwyn Bay displayed in their town halls. I wonder what happened to Caernarvon?
